Clos Vougeot Louis Jadot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Displays enticing aromas of flowers, cherry, strawberry and spice, with a hint of leather and licorice in reserve and a long, long finish. A wall of tannins shuts this down—at least for now. The aromas are worth the price of admission...96" WS 6/12 "The Clos Vougeot in 2009 was another wine that had an extremely late malolactic fermentation this year, and consequently we tasted this at the end of the extraordinary range of reds listed above. This is a superb bottle of Clos Vougeot in the making, but following hard on the heels of the ’09 Musigny is not the most propitious placement in the lineup. The nose offers up a deep and very promising blend of black cherries, black raspberries, cocoa, woodsmoke, game and complex soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite structured, with a fine core of fruit, ripe, substantial tannins, fine balance and excellent length and grip on the finish. A fine bottle. 2020-2070. 92." John Gilman a View from the Cellar 1/11

  Maison Louis Jadot is a winery that’s proud of its heritage and land. Founded in 1859 by Louis Henry Denis Jadot, Maison Jadot expanded rapidly, taking northern Europe by storm. When his son, Louis Jean Baptiste, took over in 1900, more change took place, and many vineyards were acquired, including Corton Charlemagne and Chevalier Montrachet Les Demoiselles. With the help of Rudy Kopf, founder of the Kobrand Corporation, Maison Jadot expanded even further, setting up shop in both England and the U.S. In 1985, Madame Jadot sold the company to Rudy Kopf’s family, ensuring a successful future for the company. The land is very important to Maison Louis Jadot, and making the terroir shine through is always a priority. Maison Jadot identifies with its Burgundy heritage, and all wines are Appellation Contrôlée. The winery controls about 380 acres of land in Burgundy, including Côte d'Or, Mâconnais and Beaujolais. Jacques Lardière, winemaster, works with Christine, Guillaume, and Audrey to ensure that the single-variety wines produced, including Pinot Noir for reds, Chardonnay for whites, and Gamay for Beaujolais, always produce the best, most consistent wines.
